Human Rights activist Boniface Mwangi has today (Thursday, April 8, 2021) topped Twitter trends in Kenya with netizens accusing him of being a fraud.

Using #BonifaceMwangiTheCon, tweeps leveled all manner of accusations which Boniface Mwangi vehemently dismissed.

Weighing in on the discussion, Embakassi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino termed Boniface Mwangi as the “greatest pretender of all time”.

“Empty mind with full mouth… There’s a time this idiot said that Kenyans are not worth dying for on NTV. The greatest pretender and a con of all times. Eating blood money,” Babu Owino tweeted.

In a quick rejoinder, Boniface Mwangi hit out at Babu Owino noting that he had no moral right to attack him.

The activist further noted that he is used to being attacked online, adding that he won’t be intimidated and scared by hashtags sponsored by his critics.

“Imagine the audacity of @HEBabuOwino. I thought the lies and the hashtag was from Statehouse only but it seems even Raila's people were given the same script. Hashtags, teargas, batons, bullets and even death don't scare me. Babu, one day you shall rot in jail,” he tweeted.

The exchange has elicited mixed reactions online, with some netizens reminding Babu Owino of a case where he is accused of shooting DJ Evolve.
